The Visa Vegas E Race was the single biggest sim racing event in history.  One million dollars was up for grabs and ten sim racers would have a shot at the money.  

Apex Racing has become one of the strongest sim racing teams in the world.  Through the leadership of Alex Simpson they have built up a driving academy and have some of the best sim racers in the game.

Apex Racing had two different drivers of the ten in the Visa Vegas E Race, Graham Carroll and Patrik Holzmann.  We had a couple of chances to talk with Alex Simpson about the event and his racers.  In one of the interview Patrik Holzmann joined our interview and gave us some insight from the drivers side of things in this competition.

During the interview we talked about this event and the pressure that this kind of money puts on normal everyday sim racing.



Here is our recap of the Visa Vegas E Race watch this video:

While I can't imagine wanting an Hyundai interior, it is very well done and looks incredible. Well done.

I like War Thunder, it has some real decent triple screen graphics and sound for flying the airplanes. I prefer the bombers at Arcade Battle rating, but some of the radial engined fighters are a lot of fun too. Other than that, I am an avaid truck driver driving a lot in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. They even have some really good multiplayer for both games, the ETS2 has a Winter mod built in, it looks like Winter with snow on everything and falling. Both games even have a short range "cb radio" that works in line of sight, you just set the microphone in the game and then it goes to a hot mike and people can hear you, but if you get out of sight, you can't hear each other. Now I wish other games would get the technology and incorporate it.
